Which of the following is not consumed during the process of photosynthesis?


Correct Answer : b ) Oxygen

Explanation :

Photosynthesis is the process through which plant leaves synthesize food in the presence of sunlight and with the help of carbon dioxide, water and chlorophyll. Plant roots absorb water from the soil and stomata absorb carbon dioxide from the air. Stomata are tiny pores found on leaf surface and surrounded by cells called guard cells. Chlorophyll is the green pigment present in leaves. It absorbs sunlight and captures energy from the sunlight. Photosynthesis results into production of carbohydrates and oxygen.
